Book Swap #7 - Jellygnite

Ali, known on Etsy as Jellygnite, sent this super neat book for our swap. It is an accordion structure with pockets, containing three stab-bound notebooks. The pages in the notebooks are cartridge paper and ephemera. The accordion structure wraps neatly around and is secured with black linen thread and a button.

These books reached me today and they are so beautiful! The photos really don't do them justice.

They came in a charming paper bag also made from a book page. The accordion is a glossy ivory color and the painted pieces of paper on the booklets have a very vibrant color. And I love the snippets of fish, maps, insects, text and whatnot visible on the backsides of the inside pages.
The books are smaller than I would have thought, about 2.5" x 3".

The whole objects is really adorable. I hope you can see my enthusiasm for it shine through my poor English.

Thank you very much, Ali!

I don't know how and whether I will use it, for now I will add it to my collection of "beautiful books".
